Hey guys,
Have to get my mind off of everthing else so i thought I'd find out what's for dinner at your house tonight? I'm making schzeauan(sp?) chicken and rice. Not some fab. dinner but it's what I could do tonight. Hubby made a big mexican dinner last night so I wanted something a little lighter. Haven't really been to hungry...So what are you having? Take care..make it a pain free night. Heather turn

Tonight my honey and I had a treat, dinner out without kids! Courtesy of week-long church camp and our couple's Sunday school class, we had an all-you-can-eat salad bar at a great local restaurant with fresh breads, fruit and ice cream!

All I did tonight was grill some burgers. Quick and easy. Our veggies for the evening meal was lettuce, tomato, onion, and pickles all piled on top of the burger. LOL.

Tomorrow night it will probably be spaghetti, garlic bread and a banana salad.

If you have never had a simple banana salad you should try it.

All you have to do is chop up some lettuce like you would for any salad.
Slice up a few bananas into it.

The dressing is made from mayo, sugar (or you can use Splenda or Equal just fine) and a dash of milk to thin it out mixed together.

Just before serving pour on the dressing and mix well.

JIm,
Wow, I had never heard of bananna salad. Thanks for the recipe. It sounds good. I may just have to try that tommorrow. When I have burgers, my favorite veggies are the toppings!! I was going to grill some last Friday but it decided to rain. Usually I'll grill anyways but there was lighting so I decided against it. smilewinkgrin I guess we are all def. on a theme for Italian. I did chinese so I feel left out idea , def. gonna have to get on board. I'll let you know how the salad comes out. Heather

It depends - I'm waiting for a second pair of glasses to come in to the optical shop either today or tomorrow. If they came in today, we'll be going to Ikea as well, which means dinner will be meatballs and mashed potatoes with cream sauce and lingonberries!

If they don't come in today, then there's no need to go to Ikea or area, so I'll have to cook something. I think I'll toss some stuff together to do up a stir fry.

I better go eat breakfast now...my stomach is growling loud enough that the cat came over to check me out!

   Dear Six,
 
     We had beef stew and salad. Nothing that takes alot of work on sundays. Sunday evening I have to make the entire weeks sub sandwiches, fruit bags, protien / veggie snack & pickles. It just makes the week go easier that way. We use up the excess vegetables for salad. Just add cucumbers  :-)

Wow,
All of you had some great ideas. Some really easy simple, but wonderfull sounding dinners. I will try the strawberry salad. Didn't get to the store for banannas today..heavy order, delivery, workload, and newly enrolled students I had to help. So I will go tomm and pick up strawberries as well. Yumm. Now hadn't thought about the pre-done caesar salad with the chicken strips...quick, easy.
Tonight I did Italian after everyone made me so hungry for it. Just some Italian pasta shells, hamburger and sausage, parmessan, mozz. cheese and tomatoe chunks, with red/green bell peppers from the garden. Made garlic/mushroom green beans, and garlic bread. Had to step it up tonight after reading my kids all your menus from yesterday...haha. Not sure, besides the salads for tommorrow.
Dani, great idea for making up the sandwhiches for the week. Good time saver, I love those. Anything that makes it easier.

Pebbles,
I love carne asada. Mine usually goes on tortillas with grilled onions, shrimp, and spanish rice. I had never tried it on a hoagie, but I assume it's like a philly cheese steak, right? Sounds delicious. Tonight I decided to do both the bananna salad, and strawberry one. After taking a vote with the kids, they were half and half...soo, both. I'm gonna grill some chicken and shrimp for fajitas tonight to go with it. Good luck with your eating health, I need to get on board with something like that. Heather

I had oral surgery yesterday so I was planning on having a smoothie. Just my luck, the blender broke!

My husband has this high protein, high fiber oatmeal recipe that is actually really good so I guess that's dinner. He mixes scrambled, raw eggs with the oatmeal and water then cooks it. You can't even tell the eggs are there. Then he adds protein powder, ground flax, pumpkin, spices, almond butter and whatever else looks good; nuts, plain cocoa, fruit,. It is really good and there are so many ways to vary the recipe. He was making it for months before I got the nerve to try it (I'm not an oatmeal fan and the eggs creeped me out) but it smelled so good that I eventually gave in and loved it.

Pebbles,
 That is def. a recipe I am going to try. I really commend you on sticking to the diet with him. That is really the only way it will work. Everytime I get serious my husband jumps on board with me..which although I need to lose the weight he has high cholestrol and doesn't take that into account a lot of the times when he just stops to pick up a quick bite. I've suggested to him if we can get back on the diet and find a fitness place, within reasonable price, that I can do some swimming aerobics that I am ready to get on board and make the changes. We'll see if he is up for it. I have read about what you said about giving yourself a free night. If you don't you end up blowing it. You have to reward yourself plus it tricks your metabolizm and helps you lose weight easier. Well now I rambled, oh well. Gotta get back to making my fajitas. Take care and hugs to you, Heather
 
Dagger,
I'm so sorry you had to have oral surgery, I know how painfull that is. The smoothie sounds interesting. I am not a huge oatmeal person either. It's just not always my thing. I probably could lose more weight though if I made it my thing. I might..just might..try the smoothy. I can't make any promises..the eggs throw me off too. You said there are different ways to make it. What are some of the other ways that he suggest? I'm looking for some ideas..thanks, Heather
